    Oooooommmmmmgggggg!!!!!!!
    That was a pretty awesome episode!
    But it throws up sooooooo many questions!
    Who is this little girl?? Have the Silence really gone?? What was River going on about their kiss??

    If thats the end of the Silence though, I thought that story would be drawn out more, but maybe it isnt the end of them...
    Also, whos going to be the big bad of the season? It looks unlikely to be the Silence now, so who??

    I loled at that part, Nixons face afterwards!

    Unfortunately, Id read part of a synopsis and saw the end bit with that written so knew it was going to happen =( But i forgot about that while watching the episode because it was so mind bogglingly awesome, so I wasnt expecting it at the end!

    Also, prequel for the 3rd episode is now up!!

    That. Was. Gold.

    Epic Whoness. Loved how the American national anthem started playing every time Nixon turned up.

    I can see some of the kids getting confused, but somehow . . . I'm not caring about the kids. It was brilliant. An all-time fav. So many great lines! And what an ending!

    Spoiler:
    Time Lord Girl! The Rani? No no, Amy's future daughter as suggested through the picture? But with Time Lord powers? So an Amy/Doctor baby? Or maybe a 'Timehead'?


    Questions to be answered through the series;

    - Why did the Doctor ask Canton as an old man to bring a tub of gasoline to their past selves?
    - Why did the astronaut kill the Doctor?
    - Who was the astronaut who killed future Doctor?
    - Is the girl actually a Time Lord or some genetically engineered hybrid?
    - Is the space suit alive? ("It's coming to eat me!")
    - What was the 'Lodger' machine that the Silence were using?
    - Who was eye-patch lady in the kid's room, before Amy steps in?

    Overall very good ep nice and epic. Does this mean the silence has fallen?

    So is Amy pregnant or not? Who is the girl? Did she regenerate like a Time Lord?

    Amy was in that photo with a baby so maybe that girl his hers but with Time Lord dad (the Doctor?).

    I didnt mean to read it lol
    I hadnt realised it had moved onto Part 2 of the episode lol, it jumped between episode 1 and 2 (Most of the episode wasnt spoiled for me)
    Im trying to avoid major spoilers now lol

    I also dont think thats the last of the Silence
    So many of the theories and questions we had in the Impossible Astronaut thread are still valid lol
    This seasons going to have to explain so many things lol, but I reckon Moffats had his stories planned for awhile and some questions wont be answered this series

    I also dont believe it was the Silence that created the cracks... So many questions to be answered lol

    That may actually have just become my all time favourite Who episode. I knew Moffat was a writing genius, but...

    I need to watch it again before I can comment properly though. My mind is still trying assimilate everything.

    Loved Nixon's final scene, wish we could've seen Nixon actually being persuaded to join the team though. And really loved the way the Doctor kept producing him whenever he needed to.

    Rory is the best companion ever. I love him so much. Was very annoyed at the whole "fell out of the sky bit" and will get very annoyed if we keep rehashing the Rory is convinced that Amy loves the Doctor thing, but I will confess to loudly squeeing when she called him stupid face.

    River's final bits were heartbreaking, perhaps didn't need the "and a last" I think the facial expression from Alex Kingston got the message across well enough without the rather cheesy line, brilliant acting there.

    The Silence are brilliant, I was slightly apprehensive after The Impossible Astronaut, they were scary but probably not worth the hype, then came today. They were terrifying, every time they looked at their hands and it was blinking, wow. I don't think any TV show has scared me so much since watching a certain Power Rangers when I was eight.

    The way that the Doctor defeated them was genius. Complete and utter genius, Stephen Moffat I tip my hat to you. And yet at the same time I'm left wondering, the Empire of Silence has Fallen. We're missing something here.

    And finally, the girl. So many unanswered questions. She's Amy's daughter (which incidentally means we've lost some months somewhere), the Silence have some reason for wanting her and she can regenerate. I refuse to accept she's the Doctor's child, I'm a die hard Amy/Rory shipper, but has it ever been explicitly been stated that only Time Lords can be given regeneration cycles? It could even tie in to that old piece of cannon that Time Lords don't have to be Gallifreyan and that humans can join their ranks.

    Also, there seems to be some link to the Time Lords and the Silence, there's no way the design of their TARDIS is coincidence (what happened to it at the end? Did it go to the Lodger? That doesn't seem to tie in with the theory of the Silence being in the Doctor's TARDIS during that episode), perhaps they gave Amy's child a regeneration cycle somehow? I'm missing some part of the Big Picture here, but what? We still don't know the Silence's motives, why blow up the TARDIS? Why get humans to build a space suit? Why take Amy's Daughter? And how does it tie in to the scene by the lake? This isn't the last we'll see of Canton, that's for sure.

    Also the final bit was hilarious. "Or we can just go off and have some adventures" and I'm left wondering what a Time Head is? Oooh, thought just struck me! What if Amy's right? What if travelling through time repeatedly while pregnant has done something to the baby? Given her regenerative powers? Caused her to be an object of interest to the Silence. I like this idea...

    Edit: And in all the awesome I forgot something that might be important. The door of the girl's room, what was up with that? To my mind the woman looked like River with something on her face, but it was too quick to see. Also, I find it hilarious how the season 32 forum has got two episodes in it, and a third of the posts of season 27.

    Loved this ep..

    Okay the girl in space suit.. what do we think? One of my friends was saying that at this stage steven moffat isn't going to be throwing in random timelords that aren't connected to the Doctor, but then again the Doctors daughter thing has already been done but not in proper detail but I was always hoping that Jenny would come back. Anyway me and my friend came to the conclusion that Amy was pregnant by a child with the Doctor, though they didn't have sex, the silents did it. That at some point the silents took her to america and she had the child but didn't remember it.. though the 2 months between her and Rory leaving the tardis and the letter and the 3 month gap wouldn't be enough for a full term birth. The silents could have gotten the Doctors DNA anytime and he wouldn't remember. As to why they were doing it, maybe they needed a pilot for their TARDIS, like the ship needed in the lodger? But the silents seemed to be getting on grand working it, but they weren't trying to fly it.


    Im more curious about why the silents were in 2011 when the Doctor dies.. Revenge?
    I dunno what to put in here now..

    It wasnt really explained why they took Amy, so maybe thats going to be answered later.
    Maybe they did something to her while she was captured, they seemed to have taken her for a reason.
    And as Puddle Jumper said, if the Doctor defeated the Silents in 1969, why was there one at the beginning of The Impossible Astronaut
    Also, the material they were building the Doctors prison out of, that didnt seem like human technology...
    So many questions!!!

    Also, it seems quite a few people are interested in Amy because SPOILERS
    Spoiler:
    In episode 7, doesnt Amy get taken by the cybermen and the Doctor and Rory go after her?


    It was also nice to see the Doctor talk to Rory about his centaurion memories. It seems some things are being mentioned for a reason, what with Amy saying shes pregnant etc etc.

    Was the Doctor doing a pregnancy test on Amy on his monitor, it looked like he was scanning her for something

    Argh! So many things happened this episode, definately need to rewatch it later!

    I sincerly doubt the girl is The Doctor and Amy's child, and once again, people thinking this are falling straight into Moffat's hands and stating what DW never is...the obvious.

    I'm also convinced they simply reused the prop from "The Lodger" for budgetery reasons, I could be wrong though, simply because The Doctor didnt seem to care about it. ("say, this looks familiar")

    Canton being gay was telegraphed in the first episode, the joke didnt need to be repeated twice.

    Should of watched Dr Who Confidential

    Moffat mentioned in it that they used that set on purpose. That at the end of "The Lodger" there was always the question of "what about that ship?" and this was one the the times where they answer questions later on.
